Weddings in Oman
Expert Planning Guide

 
The Sultanate of Oman boasts, of a rich heritage, an embracing society; it has a strong identity of its own, that takes pride in the ancient trading past and the confidence of a highly educated future. Oman offers its visitor a rare chance to experience the Arab world without the obnoxious display of wealth. Yet it is opulent with natural beauty - from spectacular mountains, wind-blown deserts and a pristine coastline, Oman is the obvious choice for those seeking to commit to a lifelong wedlock set amidst the modern face of Arabia while still imbibing an ancient soul.

Oman is probably not the top of mind destination when pondering over a destination wedding. But that is quickly changing and for good reason. This Middle Eastern State is a great blend of modern conveniences and facilities, history, natural beauty and delicious flavours. Oman can be the perfect wedding destination with its majestic mountains, crystal clear waters and stunning landscapes that provide a truly unique setting for your special day.

Read on and see how this beautiful desert country can be a fertile ground for you to seal your love for one another!

WEATHER-WISE

Oman has different weather patterns depending on whether you are in the northern part or southern.

Keep in mind that much like in India, summers in Oman can be scorching hot during the day time; therefore it is better suited to winter weddings in November and December.

Getting Married in Oman
Legal Requirements & Documentation

Oman is of course a Muslim country but there are many churches and temples for non-Muslims to marry. There are no civil marriages in Oman.

Both the bride and groom must provide a copy of their passport and visa. Both partners are also required to show proof of their marital status. This can simply be a letter from their embassy. If you are widowed or divorced, you have to provide documents proving so.

Four witnesses, two from each side, have to be present at the wedding ceremony. The newlyweds will need to have their marriage certificate attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by their respective embassies.

Once you are married, you will need to register your marriage at the Department of Notary Public in Al Khuwayr within one month.
